Under your Manufacturer Section of the Manuals, you can locate the section regarding Field Maintenance Manuals that contain important information regarding what you can work on in the field. We highly recommend you consult your A&P before doing any routine maintenance work.

Every Airport now requires an on field Insurance policy. Since we are not located on a particular Airfield, and with the thousands of local Airports across the South West, it would be nearly impossible. What we can do is Schedule a Propeller Pickup with either you or your A&P at your Hanger for a small Delivery Fee.

We understand that this is the worst part.. Don't worry, there is always an option and safety is the first priority. The first steps are to take a few pictures and measure the damage area.  Relay the Causation, such as Rocks, Landing Lights, Tugs, Debris, Off-field landings, etc. We have heard and seen it all. What we do next is put together a plan of action to get you the best information possible. We carry more inventory in Stock than any Propeller Shop in the United States. This means we can replace parts and repair composite propellers in a short amount of time.

First and Foremost, bring your Log Book. Also make sure your A&P places his sticker or notes that he has removed the Propeller with accompanying Tach Time, and Prop Time. This helps greatly in understanding the past maintenance. Bring your Propeller and Governor, but you can leave behind the Spinner Dome and brackets that hold the governor in place.  If you are repairing a Fixed Pitch, bring your spacer and mounting hardware for inspection.
